| NEIL LAWSON: PRINCIPAL, COACH
At Donald Jordan’s memorial and interesting story was told. It seems that there had never been any
football in Malakoff’s Grammar school or Junior High until Mr. Lawson decided to finance it himself. As the
story goes, he went to the bank and asked to borrow money in order to personally buy football equipment.
After some suggestions and “are you sure?”, the loan was made. Thus began Malakoff’s first football prior
to high school. The 1955 senior squad was counted among the charter members and indeed proved Mr.
Lawson wise in his dedication. Much credit should go to Mr. Lawson for having elevated Malakoff Football
to a new level. Thank you, Mr. Lawson
